Security Updates for Internet Explorer (September 2019)

High Nessus Plugin ID 128647

Synopsis

The Internet Explorer installation on the remote host is affected by multiple vulnerabilities.

Description

The Internet Explorer installation on the remote host is missing security updates. It is, therefore, affected by multiple vulnerabilities :

- A remote code execution vulnerability exists in the way that the VBScript engine handles objects in memory. The vulnerability could corrupt memory in such a way that an attacker could execute arbitrary code in the context of the current user. An attacker who successfully exploited the vulnerability could gain the same user rights as the current user. (CVE-2019-1208, CVE-2019-1236)

- A security feature bypass vulnerability exists when Microsoft Browsers fail to validate the correct Security Zone of requests for specific URLs. This could allow an attacker to cause a user to access a URL in a less restricted Internet Security Zone than intended.
(CVE-2019-1220)

- A remote code execution vulnerability exists in the way that the scripting engine handles objects in memory in Internet Explorer. The vulnerability could corrupt memory in such a way that an attacker could execute arbitrary code in the context of the current user. An attacker who successfully exploited the vulnerability could gain the same user rights as the current user.
(CVE-2019-1221)
